South Lodge ·  A Five-Star Country Retreat: Where the natural world and modern expectations live in perfect harmony.


At our walking and well-being reset retreat in West Sussex, we will inspire your long-term journey to health and healing in nature. Walk Yourself Happy Retreats offers the perfect combination for walkers, lovers of nature, and those looking to enhance their health, mind, body, and soul through workshops, walks, and nutritional advice. Your well-being retreat curator and host, Julia Bradbury, will be there throughout the experience, working alongside you in the sessions, leading the much-anticipated nature walks, and reading extracts from her Sunday Times Bestseller in the most life-enhancing surroundings.

Your retreat will feature sessions with our experts, including international breathwork practitioner Patrick McKeown. You’ll rest, reconnect and restore with Lisa Pauley and reignite a deep connection to nature, unlocking freedom of movement with forest walks and through every balance along a fallen branch, lift of a log, or hang from a tree with Hannah Beadle.

Julia and renowned nutritionist Pauline Cox will design the perfectly balanced menu for your two-day, one-night stay. Dining with Julia, our experts and other attendees in private, this intimate family-style approach offers the perfect opportunity to discuss the day and graze over shared interests. We will explore the practices through dinner conversation and wrap up with an informal Q&A.

But the knowledge sharing doesn’t end there; Julia will reveal how she embeds these incredible techniques into her everyday routine. Our team has meticulously prepared top tips and takeaways for each attendee, ensuring you leave equipped with practical knowledge. These will happily complement the personally gifted Walk Yourself Happy journaling notebook, a tool you’ll find useful during your stay and beyond!
